Meriel is a witch bound by blood to protect her tiny island from a dangerous sea god. But she begins to rethink her life when she begins getting visit from the lovely Nor, a girl who has transformed from a seas creature into an enchanting lady.

This was a pretty original story. I loved the use of lore to tell the reasons why Meriel has to do her duty.

What I liked about this story is, we can all relate to having to do something that feels like it is an obligation. But, at a certain point, we all have to look at our lives and examine whether the things we are doing are being done for the right reasons. Ms. Diemer captured an integral piece of humanity in her short story, showing how loneliness can affect a person.
